Barnes Dance

The one night that I spent in the Shibuya district of Tokyo during my excursion in Japan in 06' was nothing unbelievable...and not long enough...

I was by myself that night...away from the other study abroad students...and this pic reminds me of a few things I did that night:

-I walked back and forth through this crazy intersection several times that night...

-I bought a cup of coffee at the Starbucks on the right...

-I bought two cd's from the HMV; Donny Hathaway's These Songs for You, Live and the Lost in Translation soundtrack...

-I bought an Epiphone SG 400 from a guitar store that was somewhere off on the left of this pic...

good times, good times...

thanks Barnes.

this pic looks cool, but was it photoshopped? or a panaromic? it looks weird on the bottom/middle

are things really that bright a busy looking over there? if so, then its not just the crazy tv shows and video games giving people seizures...

@niki: yessss! but i'm don't think i want to go to italy...sorry

@adrianne: i think the bottom portion of the picture was photoshopped...i didn't edit it actually found the pic on flickr so the author probably edit the bottom of the pic to give it more depth...

@stew: lol...yea the lights are bright in metro areas of Japan...that is the one thing i loved about it. I bet aliens can see the lights from space! lol

shutter speed?

kid.a said...

@ tim: not sure what the shutter speed is...typical shutter speeds are 1/60 but i'm not sure what this person took the pic in...

oh yea i found this pic on flickr...i forgot to mention that...i'll update the post...

@ tim: just found the person who took the pic on flickr...and he/she said they took it w/ their Sony DSC-P10 pocket camera...

i don't think that camera has shutter speed option so it was probably taken on a default/auto shutter speed which ranges 1/30 - 1/2000 sec...and the shutter speed was based off of what the camera thinks is the correct speed...

hope that helps...

i used to have a Sony Camera similar to this pocket camera...loved it...took really great pics...
